The Revenge of the Poets

About a month ago I made a comment with regard to Job that I just did not like poetry that much. I feel like a “big time reader” and take that part of my responsibility seriously. However I was simply trying to help the congregation understand that for those who are like me—not all that proficient at poetic form—that reading Job is work.

I asked the congregation not to say anything to one of my favorite English teachers—I think I called her the “president of the English teachers union”—but unfortunately, numerous people called her and this is what I received from her that next week:

There once was a preacher named Dave,
Who wanted the whole world to save,
But he insulted the poets
And wouldn’t you know it,
When the plate passed, nobody gave. –BR

Okay, Bev, I surrender.
